“An edgy examination of ‘the complexity of resistance and struggle for Latinos in the United States’ and a joyous celebration of community”
- San Francisco Bay Guardian
CONTRA-TIEMPO takes Latin social dance to new heights by infusing elements of salsa, Afro-Cuban, and urban dance styles. joyUS justUS reclaims the dominant deficit-based narrative of people of color in this country and flips it on its head by embodying stories of joy collected from communities in Los Angeles.
This bold, multilingual dance company draws on their Los Angeles roots to create an invigorating blend of culturally-engaging, socially-conscious work that is athletic and visually stunning.
There is a free dance party after every show where the audience is invited to join the performers and dance the night away. So much of the music in the show makes people want to get up and dance so this is the perfect way for guests to connect with these amazing dancers and have fun too!
